Charges Dropped Against Models in Animal Torture Porn Case

Categories: Crime

Stephanie Hird and Sara Zamora will not be prosecuted for taking part in a sexual fetish film in which they violently tortured animals. Prosecutors involved in the case have not officially offered a reason why the charges have been dropped, but the women told the Miami Herald that the videos were made as far back as 2004, well beyond the statute of limitations, and that they were manipulated into making the videos in the first place.

"We're the victims," Zamora, 28, told the Herald. "We were manipulated and convinced that these things were alright. And unfortunately they were very wrong and now we have to pay the consequences, even if it was ten years ago."

However, both Zamora and Hird, as well as their lawyer, maintain they did not harm animals and that it was actually other women in some of those videos.

The women were featured on a website called SOS Porn in skimpy outfits or partially undressed while torturing animals. The women were depicted doing everything from stomping on fish and cutting chickens' heads off to wounding rabbits, setting rodents on fire, and shooting rats.

Adam Redford is the man behind the videos and website. A boat captain by trade, he has not been arrested or charged.

Stephanie Hird has got a Fundraiser Page she started, to help with her skin condition due to the stress she's been under. Seriously. And take a look at Who she's friends with. There was 1 chick wishing her well and when I clicked on her profile, a few posts down, there's a guy holding a black & white Pit Bull puppy by the scruff of the kneck, with his arm extended so you don't see his face, and it says 'Girl For Sale' *shudders*

How much of a sociopath do you have to be to "not know" that torturing animals is wrong. I'm disgusted by the fact that charges were dropped against these women but even more so by the fact that charges have not been brought against the person running the site.

There is so much hate being posted here. Stephanie Hird has maintained her innocence all along. She has stated that her limited involvement with this web site was over ten years ago and involved NO harm to animals. Obviously if there was proof otherwise, the charges would not have been dropped. For all of these folks spewing hate....how many have you have had a plate of veal or eat eggs from non free range chickens? There is so much condoned animal abuse that goes on every day in this country that the average person supports through purchasing products from farmers who have created horrific conditions for animals. As for Stephanie Hird, whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? People posting hate against a young woman with no facts to back it up should be ashamed.

And of course the models claim that they're somehow the victims. Sorry ladies, the animals have my sympathy. You do not.

State probably did not have a strong enough case, that said? these women shall have to live with their consciences. I cannot imagine cruelty to animals, if they do not pay their dues in the court of mankind, they shall most certainly be called to account in the courts of the Allmighty. It is merely deferred justice, and the Allmighty is far wiser a judge than any man yet born. Rest assured, they shall answer. There is no other alternative, nor appeal, nor reduction of sentence.

It's really ironic that just 3 hours ago you said Miami was the best city in the US for animals....Apparently not. Maybe a good place for this piece of lowlife, poor excuse for a human trash to get off without any jail time......

If this was a man and he "didn't know any better" they would tell him ignorance of the law does not excuse you from the law. But all a bitch has to do is sob a lil bit and say the same and shes let go. must be nice to have a pussy.

How far did you have to dig to come to Hird's fund raising page? I know this lady and I am not even aware of it. As for her facebook friend selling puppies, come on, you are going too far to make such remarks. If you want to get *shudders* about the way puppies are sold, take a look at the upscale pet shops. Puppies are purchased on line, shipped across the country and put into cute little containers with puppies that are not their litter mates...and an age that puts them at risk for parvo and emotionally could traumatize them. Is that okay but a breeder, holding a pup the very same way the pup's mother would, gives you the *shudders*? I have no idea who the dog breeder is holding the pup in the photo you describe. However, I find your post suspect. Take a look at the way puppies are brokered on line. The on line puppy mills dress themselves up nicely, with the dogs having cute bows but NO background check for the new owners. The pups that don't sell are shipped to  upscale "Boutiques" that put them in cute little crates, some times even cribs, to lure a buyer on an emotional purchase. You, Sherry Oehler,  come across as being either clueless about animal rights, most specifically the way that puppies should be allowed to be bought and sold or someone who is simply jealous of Hird's successes as a fetish model.

Melissa Trujillo, are you a vegan? Do you have any idea the torture that animals are put through every day for the sake of ending up on someone's plate or in processed food and hidden under some obscure ingredient? Visit a chicken farm some day and see how you feel about the condition these caged animals are kept in so the average person at a deli can have lunch. Secondly, do you bother to read a full news story before commenting? Hird and Zamora are two different people. Hird has only proclaimed innocence from both harming animals and stating the single video she made with this site was ten years ago. Zamora's comments are troubling, at best. However, she is speaking only for herself. Special interest groups that care about animal rights should be looking into the reason why the video producer was not stopped from this when it was brought to his attention with animal cruelty charges. Would it have been okay to torture a baby cow, film it and then sell the tortured carcus as veal? Before making a blanket judgement, which a lot of people have here, take the time to understand exactly what happened here. Take the time to look at ingredients on lables. Take the time to educated yourself on how animals are treated every day for the sake of convenience food. Again, Hird has always proclaimed innocence in harming animals. Before people jump to judgement, at the very least, know your facts.

Regulation of this industry? It is already illegal to make porn videos that involve the torture of animals, as it should be! The video producer of this website was charged last year with cruelty to animals and let off with a slap on the wrist!!! Were is the rage over that? What people are missing is that Stephanie Hird has denied all involvement with harming animals. As for this other model, I do not know her and find her comments puzzling. She thought it was okay to hurt animals? However, her comments have nothing to do with Hird's case. I've worked with Hird on multiple occassions. She certainly does not seem the kind of person who would ever harm an animal. She has always denied that she has. Most producers of adult videos are careful to follow both the written laws in place and ethical laws of being a human being. Many porn actresses are vegans and animal lovers. It is sad to see the hate here against a young woman that was never proven guilty. How many people posting here have ordered a plate of veal or think nothing of eating eggs from farms that are not free range? Back to your point, harming animals in adult films is both illegal and also could easily fall into an obscenity case. It is doubtful that Hird would have shot for this web site knowing that the producer has actually harming animals or would be in the future. Anyone who knows her would have to doubt the charges. Shame on everyone here who is assuming Hird guilty and wishing hate on her when they do not know what happened. The next time they sink their teeth into a hamburger or take a bite of chicken salad...they should immediately spend time on google finding out how animals that end up on our plates are treated.

@thomas314 And two wrongs don't make a right. Saying that other people do bad stuff isn't a defence.

@thomas314 There was video proof you moron. The only reason they were dropped was because the statute of limitations for animal cruelty in Florida is 5 years. The video was made 10 years ago.
